Catalyst of Change Awards

We are proud to award outstanding Family Resource Programs and individuals that work tirelessly towards creating healthy families and healthy communites in BC. We have two award categories: Distinguished Service Awards and Catalysts of Change. Both categories focus on the impact our member organizations or individual has in their communities. These individuals and organizations exemplify our model, they are: open, honest, collaborative, hard-working and passionate for this field.
